NOW PLAYING:  TKO - Justin Timberlake

It's already November and while the majority of my lovely readers are welcoming (or more appropriately rejecting) the appearance of crisp, frosty weather and lovely white snow flakes, over on this side of the world we've stolen your sunshine and are preparing for summer. And with the despicable Australian heat so comes one's preference for fresh white everything. Maybe it's my subconscious mind yearning for cooler weather and dainty flecks of snow or perhaps it's just my mind turned to mush by the heat, but either way I am always attracted to it's brightness and purity this time of year. Especially with the dawning of the silly season, which has everything to do with my dreams of a white Christmas. And with that thought and in keeping with the spirit of being merry I could not help but include John Lennon's infamous quote on happiness on this collage. It is my most favourite quote and always brings me a smile.

So here's to November, may it be kind to you all and bring you lots of love, light and smiles.

xoxo

  1. Aww, you're so lucky it's getting warmer over there. :) Enjoy your sunshine...I'm making lots of Australian friends over here in Switzerland. They're all talking about how the weather is so different.

  3. It always trips me out to think about the difference this time of year between all of my Australian bloggy friends! I totally forget that not everyone is sipping pumpkin spiced lattes right now.

  5. He actually said that?? Lennon I mean. Not that he didn't say it, but did that actually happen?? If it did, that's really cool. Ever since I can remember my birthday wishes, falling star wishes, eyelash wishes, etc have always been "to be happy"...

    1. I've just read your comment... Are you sure you don't want to remove those cysts?? I'm sure the scar would be minimal and you have a ton of scar creams that actually do help AND you can get laser treatments to remove it or at least improve the appearance of it. Babe... Don't push your luck - even thought we're apparently like cats with 9 lives, we might be running out of options.:)

    2. Yes he did Peet, though there's a few words missing from the one I posted above. It's been mine too BTW. And the cyst thing, I wouldn't get operated in this country since there is only 2 specialists in my state for this problem and they both would only come up with one way for surgery. In the USA they have other options. I had a cousin do this procedure so I think I will follow her steps, if I ever decide too! ;o)

  11. Whoa, I never considered how the seasons would be reversed. I think if I were to ever move to Australia, I would have to come back home for Christmas---it just doesn't seem right to have it fall in the middle of summer. But of course, that's coming from me, a close-minded American. I'd love to see how you celebrate/decorate!

  12. i've always been curious as to how it is during the holiday season over there. i know it's summer and being in a hotter climate during that time would feel so weird for someone like me who's been experiencing cold holidays.

    well i hope november treats you well, dear! :)

  35. I actually never knew that quote was from JL, I've heard it countless times. He just totally elevated in my books right now. I wish I could trade spots with you! What I wouldn't do for warmer pastures. I hope you enjoy your summer, winter is entirely depressing!

  44. I've hear this quote a lot, it's definitely a great one. Gah, I'm so jealous. I love the heat and sun! I'd gladly trade you places. It's been getting so chilly here and way too rainy. I agree, white is so fresh and beautiful. I especially love the white on white look! : )

  45. Goshh, I absolutely hate the weather here in the UK! It changes way too fast and we're expecting snow on wednesday so I'm not looking forward to that haha. I wish I was in Australia, soaking up on the beautiful sunshine and all that! I can't wait till summer again.. sometimes, I'm just too tired to layer up! And that quote is amazing :) <3
